A campus subscription account gives you unlimited access to all content on the site, except for a limited number of articles from 1923 to 1980.

I already have a NYT digital subscription giving me unlimited access to What should I do?

If you have an existing digital subscription, you will not be able to activate an campus account. Please contact to discuss your options.

What are the restrictions?

You need to be connected to your institution’s network to activate the campus account. At this time, access to articles from 1923 to 1980 is limited to five articles per person per day for the entire duration of the campus subscription.

Can I access from off-campus?

All campus subscription accounts provide full access to NYT apps; visit to download. Access on any device  with a browser (computer, smartphone, or tablet). Mobile apps are supported by most devices.

Why am I asked to log in on some occasions and not others?
